Rains

Hailing from a country where it rains 121 days of the year, Rains find a very Danish equilibrium between unassuming style and effective rain repellency. Their stable of raincoats for outdoor adventures (whether in the concrete jungle, Scandinavian forest or Australian bush) is outdone only by a selection of bags including duffle bags, shoulder bags and the signature Rains backpack.

Like all good Danes, the Rains backpack is a bag that takes both its job and its looks seriously. Made from sleek, waterproof polyeurethane with an in-built laptop pocket, this streamlined backpack is functional and compact but, in true Scandinavian spirit, not at the cost of aesthetics. Designed with the morning Copenhagen commute in mind, Rains’ understated backpack features thin, adjustable shoulder straps, a hidden iphone pocket at the back, and a simple hook close.

Made from slick, waterproof polyeruthane, the classic Rains bag is for seafarers, glampers and weekend warriors alike. With an adjustable shoulder strap, voluminous main compartment and waterproof zip, it’s tough enough to cram with wet life jackets, big enough to fit your pillow, and svelte enough to stow in an overhead locker.

All hidden front pockets and practical ventilation eyelets, the Rains long jacket is a wet-weather ode to minimalist, functional design in lightweight, no-nonsense fabric. With a tailored cut, barely perceptible flair and practical waist tie, the Rains curve jacket, on the other hand, solves the travel wardrobe conundrum by moonlighting as a sleek, scrunchable, lightweight trench.

Rains’ Danish version of the classic Mac coat is carefully cut and structured so as to keep the iconic pointed collar shape in tact whilst also blocking the breeze. Slightly oversized to allow a unisex fit, every element of it has been agonized over in true Scandinavian fashion, meaning it’s suitable for both high street and high tide.

Born out of necessity in Copenhagen in 2012, Rains is a company that is committed to doing one thing and doing it well.
